Tip Reasoning

  • Benin failed to score in every one of their visits to Senegal.
  • Five of Benin’s last six away defeats came without reply.

AFCON champions Senegal can cruise on by

After winning their first piece of major silverware in the recent AFCON tournament, Senegal must go through qualifying as they seek to do it all over again. Standing in their way in the opener is Benin, a side they have not lost against since 1961 (W5, D1).

Senegal doubled up on the Egyptian punishment by knocking them out of World Cup contention as well as in the AFCON final, so it may be an understatement to say that Senegal enter qualifying in high spirits.

In fact, Senegal went unbeaten at home during the last AFCON qualification cycle with both victories coming by a 2-0 scoreline, the same final score that we predict in this encounter.

A tough challenge for Benin

After failing to qualify for the recent AFCON tournament on goal difference alone, Benin must do more to ensure their place this time around. However, beginning with a trip to the African champions could be a bridge too far, especially considering that they failed to score in two of their three qualifying away games.

Given the apparent gulf in class between the nations, we predict that Senegal will win this game without reply. The odds on a straight win seem very skinny, so this seems like a reasonably safe way to add value to the home win.
